The Manitowoc Parks & Recreation Department has cancelled tonight's (Oct 27) indoor ultimate session. Apologies for the inconvenience.
If you plan to participate in indoor ultimate this season, please sign up at the MPRD ASAP, either by phone, in person or via the website (see previous post for link).
We are pleased to announce (albeit without much warning) that the next session of indoor pick-up ultimate frisbee will begin next week. The sessions will run from 8:15pm to 10:15pm on Wednesday nights from October 27 until December 22 of 2010. The 9-week session fee is $21.
It's summer! That means it's time for some pick-up ultimate where it was meant to be played, outside on grass. So lace up the cleats, get your white and dark shirts, fill that jug of water and get out there!
Right now there is a regular weekly game shaping up on Wednesday evenings at the Wilson JHS bowl from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. We'll add these to our event calendar, and will also create events from our Facebook page that you can share and invite friends.
Ultimate Summer School is beign offered to all students from grades 7-12.
There are two sessions:
June 21- July 2
Students entering grades 7-9 will play in the morning 8:00 - 10:05
Students entering grades 10-12 will play from 10:15 - 12:20
Please see attached registration documents and submit them ASAP!
See you there!
Due to popular demand, the MPRD is offering a per-session scale at $3.50 per night.
Note that you still have to register and pay ahead of time. We will NOT be handling registration or payment at the gym sessions.
If you are paying per night, you'll need to pay at the MPRD office or possibly over the phone with credit card, as I don't believe they can make changes to the website registration.
The MPRD and MUFC will be distributing fliers to advertise the new spring session of Indoor Ultimate. But you can download the flier HERE right now and print it out to share, or pass along this link! Spread the word!
The Manitowoc Park & Rec Dept has granted us the gym for a 10-week
spring session, from March 24 to May 26. This is on WEDNESDAYS, not
Thursdays anymore. Also, the sessions will be 3 hours now instead of
just 2. Sessions are from 7pm-10pm.
Another big change is going to be cost. In order to remove a major
hassle each night, the MPRD has decided to require pre-registration
and payment for the entire season. The spring season will cost $29.
Due to extraordinarily low player registration numbers, we've decided to cancel this year's Manitowoc Ultimate Hat Tournament. We would love to still have everyone come and play, but some players were coming from too far away to not be able to offer a full tournament.
We apologize for any inconvenience this causes for players that have already registered. The MPRD will be refunding your money. If you have any problems with this, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rest assured that we will be back in 2010 with new life and a bigger, better experience for all.
The ManHat is still looking for players to fill out the tournament next week Saturday, July 25th! To make things more enticing, the registration fee has been kept at the early bird price of $15! Where else will you get a shirt, disc and day of easy-going Ultimate for $15? NOWHERE.
Please tell your friends, and send them to http://www.mufc.us/tournament!
